The crown resides in Atlanta and the south.

If you're from NY and you want to be hot, you better sign with a southern label, or associate yourself with the south in some way, shape or form.
So name all the talent that’s keeping Atlanta on top? Why aren’t ATL artist the majority of the artist on the freshman XXL magazine cover?

“you can’t be from NYC if you want to be hot”
So explain why A boogie, Cardi B, Tekashi 69, ASAP MOB, Niki Minaj, French Montana are all hot?

And all major labels live in NYC!

Cities like these shouldn't be anywhere near this discussion as each has its own local musical genre which takes precedence. I'd say the same for DC and Bmore also.

I’m actually more alarmed that he put Memphis, New Orleans and Toronto on the list.

Btw Miami has a great hip hop scene and is a city that is slept on a lot. One of my favorite underground rap locations.

List means nothing if you can’t name the talent coming from those places.
We don't even have to do that. I can name artist from this cities that are bigger artist than anything NYC has, well, aside from New Orleans based Young Money artist Nicki Minaj, and yhe Girlfriend of Atlanta group Migos' Offset.

How about London on the track recording music for 50?

Seems like the hate NYC did on the south (not other regions like you claim) seem very well forgotten!
You mean London on the track sold a beat to 50 cent? 50 cent hasn't been relevent since, what, 06-07?

Plus you’re from Baltimore a city known for people blasting nothing but NY rap. LMFAO.

But the funniest part is you saying “nice try” to Murphy when he pretty much exposed the funny contradicting comment you said lol. I think he should be saying “nice try” to you. Lol
NYC influences NOTHING in Baltimore. Baltimore has been a region that has been BIG on southern music since the late 90s. Lil Boosie even said it on The Breakfast Club interview that Baltimore is one of his biggest markets.

Murphy didn't expose anything. He trying to sell to me that NYC is on its way back because, but the rapper that he referred to is copying the style, and lyrics of a southern artist...those fruit loops colored dreads and fronts must be a NYC thing tho....that mess looks ridiculous.

Yes we do. I follow hip hop religiously and can name artist from all those regions you mentioned which is why I know you are just yapping with no evidence.

Ok cool so I guess you proved my point that NYC runs hip hop since Beyoncé is Married to Jay Z which is more dominant couple than Offset and Cardi B. Since you want to play those awkward games!

Plus the weird notion that Atlanta should get a reward because Cardi B and Offset are engaged just sounds sexist to me. I’m curious to why you keep mentioning this weird fact? And what relevance it has to this topic!

Um no he produced a beat for him. 50 is one of the biggest moguls in hip hop and every southern artist would be crawling on their feet to work with him.

I would think Memphis is better than either one.
